Meet The Buyer 2019

Meet The Buyer 2019

Glasgow’s Hampden Park was buzzing on Wednesday with the annual Meet the Buyer event – an opportunity to meet procurement decision makers across the Public and Private sectors.   A full day of public sector insight, support for suppliers and great conversations. The day was sponsored by the Scottish Government and Scotland Excel.

FPSG’s Public Sector team was in attendance to discuss ways in which we can support Public Sector recruitment through our framework agreements and highlighting recent case studies with the Scottish Government and other high profile public sector organisations.  Our team includes Michael Taggart who looks after the direction of our services, Procurement specialist David Simpson and Chief Operating Officer, Andrew Spratt.


We enjoyed insight into Scottish Government Cyber Resilience with Head of Public Sector Cyber Resilience, Paul Chapman on how the Scottish Government is driving forward Cyber Resilience within the public sector and supporting the Scottish business community with Cyber Essentials.

Delivering Social Value through Procurement with Scotland Excel supported our own development of our CSR policy and how we engage with our staff, suppliers and the communities in which we work through our Fair Work initiatives.

Great conversations

Throughout the day we had some great conversations around current and upcoming projects with Scottish Police, Scottish Fire & Rescue, the NHS, Sellafield, Dounreay and the National Records for Scotland. We look forward to having the opportunity to get involved and build upon our current service track record within the Public Sector,

Thank you to the Supplier Development Programme for putting together such an info packed event. It was brilliant to be able to make so many contacts in person.
